Yeah the bluefin is definitely worth it, even after test driving an ST and putting a deposit down on one, I still love putting my foot down in my ZS it's awesome. When I took the bluefin map off for its service the car felt very underwhelming compared to with the bluefin.

When I was talking to the salesman about the ST he said he's currently got a ZS and would love to remap it, but it isn't his car. I asked him about warranty and he just said it's a grey area and that he couldn't say that it would definitely invalidate it. He was that unbothered by it I told him mine is remapped, he asked me if I would take him for a spin so he could see the difference, and to just put it back to original map before part exing it for the ST.

Obviously when things go wrong dealerships will always look for an excuse not to pay to fix it on warranty, so I'd still be wary, take it off whenever you go to the dealership. He also reckoned if you disconnect the battery for a while, you can't tell it's been remapped. Don't know how true that is

Looks like an epic trip. How much do you reckon it all cost?

Say 150 each for petrol, 35 each for ferry, 300 each hotels for 7 nights, if you did hostels be cheaper. And then beer and food money which will differ massively depending on how much you like to eat and drink and how expensive your tastes

Edit: for two people in one car....

Haha! I have long arms, and I was thinking about it today while driving, I change from 3rd to 4th with just a flick of the wrist rather than a whole arm movement...
